As a result of liberalization, deregulated electricity markets were formed to provide affordable electricity for consumers through promoting competition. Although the new market is expected to serve this purpose, even the earliest deregulated electricity markets are prone to threats that may disrupt the competition. While the independent system operator, responsible for administering the electricity markets, aims to provide the consumer with the lowest possible electricity price, lack of competition may increase prices. We consider the effect of three major factors hand-in-hand on that may affect the level of competition in the market: the independent system operator’s market-clearing mechanism as a strategic choice, strategic bidding behavior of generation companies and the transmission network.
